I think he is still alive? I meant PR grave in that he killed any credibility or relevancy he had long ago. So when a golden opportunity like this occurs, he is entirely unable to take advantage of it.

His spiritual successors will carry his flame. Only this time they are on the Left.

Well, the left are well known for their deep hatred of videogames. I mean, it all began with the release of French: Revolution eh?

All that time trying to take down Rockstar Games when he should have been going after FIFA.

Liberals forced developers to put a girl in Battleduty WWII: WW2 Harder and that ruined the historical accuracy of video games forever.

I demand diversity in my Nazi enemies. Why can't they have equal representation as Mexican, African, or even Jewish, characters?

I don't see why not. You have some very fine people on both sides.

We're not allowed to have Nazi enemies. Triggers the Alt-Right and gets them all mad that conservative values are being attacked.

I wonder what their reaction would be if some top video games came out today. Mario? Why is Nintendo forcing diversity with an Italian character? Legend of Zelda? Of course the princess crosses dresses, the left is just forcing their non-binary gender values on us again.

Ok I guess Zelda also cross dresses in Windwaker, but I still think that's not very recent either.

Zelda isn't dressed overly princess-like in Breath of the Wild. (been a while, thought she was just wearing pants and a long sleeve shirt?)

And Mario games are coming out all the time?

The Mario Bros. arcade game was when Mario and Luigi where first identified as Italian and given their profession as plumbers. People are accustomed to it today so it's not new or threatening to them.

Sheik is a very clear cross dress. Tetra is pushing the is pushing the limits between a boyish look and straight cross dress. BotW isn't masculine at all, unless you think the mere act of wearing pants (spandex booty pants at that) is somehow masculine.

Minority leads and gender ambiguity in media get the right in a tizzy these days.

Sheik never struck me as cross dressing. Hiding, mysterious maybe. But masculine? Maybe in the sense that she wasn't wearing a dress, and wasn't helpless... same sense as many other Zelda outfits since. Even as a kid when I first got my N64 I don't recall that. Maybe the existence of the Gerudo in the same game and their muscular thin women offset any apparent cross dressing.

As for Mario and Italian... people wouldn't be "threatened" these days even if they hadn't already "come out" as Italian because no one cares about Italians and Irish anymore. They are just White.

Almost as much as when they make a Resident Evil game trailer that shows someone shooting black zombies? Or when a White actor gets slated to play Michael Jackson? Or a woman gets listed to play a trans-woman? Or a lesbian gets announced to play gay batgirl? Oh wait... that was the left outrage. Smiley: rolleyes

White people can't afford to be dividing up how "white" they are these days... Italians, Irish, all are welcome...

(Except the Jewish, apparently)

The fear of becoming the minority group will do that. I imagine Cuba and Puerto Rico should be getting their invites to sit at the table pretty soon.

White Hispanics are already close enough to being accepted.

There's just too many attractive non-white people in the world these days. It's a bit of a problem.

Pretty soon we'll be calling East Asians "white" just to shore the numbers up.

"Good news, we just found another two billion white people!"

Don't know, things get awful brown farther south. Maybe if we just stick to Japan and Korea. They already have baseball, maybe we can get them interested in Nascar too.

You know, I never got why Irish wasn't white. I mean, I wasn't interested enough to actually Google it to find out on my own, but the thought has crossed my mind once or twice.

I don't think it was as much that they weren't "white" (in the literal sense). But just that they weren't "Us" in the "Us vs Them" sense. They were "Them." They were the immigrants. They were the lower class, poor, dangerous. They were the threat to the status quo. Now enough years have passed and there is a new "Them." 2-3 generations from now, there will be another "Them" and members of the current "Them" will be part of "Us". And it will all play out again.
